With two games remaining in the MLS regular season, the New England Revolution are locked into the ninth spot in the Eastern Conference.
New England has 29 points, which puts it seven points ahead of Toronto FC. Even if Toronto FC won both of its final two games and the Revolution didn't add another point, New England would still be in ninth place. The Revolution also trail the Philadelphia Union by seven points, meaning they cannot gain ground, either.
While they are locked into the ninth spot in the Eastern Conference, New England can improve its overall standing in the MLS over the final two games. The Revolution are currently tied for 17th place out of 19 teams, but could move up as high as 15th over the final two weeks. New England is tied with Chivas USA and trails the Portland Timbers by one point and Colorado Rapids by two points. Each team has played 32 regular season games.
After a brief hiatus in the schedule for U.S. Men's National team games, the Revolution will return to action Saturday against the Chicago Fire.
